Attorney Gen. Pam Bondi’s office announced two Medicaid fraud arrests this week. The larger one involved an Orlando-area woman who billed taxpayers $3 million for mental-health case work that was never done. As WMFE News reports, Bondi said the woman spent the money living high on the hog, on cruises, fancy cars, and $175,000 worth of Louis Vuitton bags. 

In the other case, a speech pathologist billed for more than half a million dollars’ worth of services supposedly provided in West Palm Beach while she was actually living in another state, the Palm Beach Post reports.
